Copper Roof Copula Concord MA

For this new construction project, the cupola was built on-site in historic Concord, Massachusetts. It was then transferred to the shop for the copper to be clad to the roof. A design change was made along the way: The original intention to add a weather vane to the top of the cupola was changed to fitting the top with a simple point.
